Citypaper / Wallpaper


Citypaper places ones hometown map as a graphical element onto the wall.
In form of a wallpaper only the outlines of streets and geographical features are shown. Street names, designations and geographical color coding were left out by intention to maintain an overall reticent impression.
The map is also a skeleton that can be expanded by adding stickers, just like a mental map. This way, a personal access to the own city results.
Five colors represent five categories. Public Transport, Culture, Sports, Clubs&Music and Restaurants&Bars. They can be labeled with personal relevant locations. Another graphical element arouses on the wall.
